I have a used 18 inch polo saddle that I am trying to sell. It is all leather (no suede) and in good condition. It is an Argentine-made saddle, and the maker's tag says "Nietos de Casmiro Gomez S.A." made in Argentina. The billets are all in good shape with no obvious weak spots. There are some small nicks and scratches on the surface of the saddle, but nothing that affects the performance or usability of the saddle. I am asking $100 for it (plus shipping). Please contact me by email if interested. This saddle is located in Waynesville, OH.

Does any one need any help exersising their ponies this summer?
From July to the end of August.
Please let me know were your horses are based, and what you would be asking me to do.
But I would prefer to work for some one who is based in a private yard.
I can ride, and have been playing a bit of polo on and off for around a year now.
I have exersised last year, and i played a small amount over easter.
Contact me here, Thanks.
Meanwhile, in a galaxy far far away, this message appeared the exact same day on a Polo Chat Room in the Babar System.

Is there some one out there who can help me exercise my ponies this summer?
At this time I am not at liberty to say where my horses are based, or what I would be asking you to do.
But I can tell you it will be based in a private yard.
Can you ride? Must have at least one year of polo experience.
Must have exersised at least once during the last year, including Easter weekend.
Must have spellchecker.
If interested, please contact me here, Thanks.
Now here's the kind of post you know won't go unanswered in the Polo Chat Room. Opinions are like ponies, everybody's got one.
[original message unchanged] Stopping on the ball
Wednesday, 26-May-1999 11:25:05
We have a green horse that has been stick and balled for a few weeks. On a couple of occasions in the last two weeks she has stopped dead from a canter when I go to hit the ball sending me straight off the front. Does anyone have any ideas how I can discourage this before it becomes a habit. Also what would cause her to do it?
